Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Annual percentage rate (APR)

The annual interest rate

• Chord of a conic

A line segment with endpoints on the conic

• Component form of a vector

If a vector’s representative in standard position has a terminal point (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) , then (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) is the component form of the vector, and a and b are the horizontal and vertical components of the vector (or a, b, and c are the x-, y-, and z-components of the vector, respectively)

• Ellipse

The set of all points in the plane such that the sum of the distances from a pair of fixed points (the foci) is a constant

• Head minus tail (HMT) rule

An arrow with initial point (x1, y1 ) and terminal point (x2, y2) represents the vector <8x 2 - x 1, y2 - y19>

• Intercepted arc

Arc of a circle between the initial side and terminal side of a central angle.

• Mapping

A function viewed as a mapping of the elements of the domain onto the elements of the range

• Multiplicative inverse of a complex number

The reciprocal of a + bi, or 1 a + bi = a a2 + b2- ba2 + b2 i

• Nautical mile

Length of 1 minute of arc along the Earth’s equator.

• Order of magnitude (of n)

log n.

• Parameter

See Parametric equations.

• Parameter interval

See Parametric equations.

• PH

The measure of acidity

A procedure for fitting a quadratic function to a set of data.

• Quartic regression

A procedure for fitting a quartic function to a set of data.

• Resistant measure

A statistical measure that does not change much in response to outliers.

• Richter scale

A logarithmic scale used in measuring the intensity of an earthquake.

• Root of an equation

A solution.

• Secant

The function y = sec x.

• Summation notation

The series a nk=1ak, where n is a natural number ( or ?) is in summation notation and is read "the sum of ak from k = 1 to n(or infinity).” k is the index of summation, and ak is the kth term of the series
